Giant Oil Paintings of Instagram-Famous Pigeon by Belgian Artist Adele Renault


Belgian painter Adele Renault’s large-scale portraits are impressive enough on their own. However, the story behind the subject of her latest series (currently on view at Havas Annex in Chicago) is worth noting. Artist George Keaton and photographer Mariah Naella found an egg on their kitchen counter after workers accidentally destroyed a pigeon nest while fixing their windows. The egg started hatching and before they knew it the couple was raising a little bird. Even after being released back into the wild, the pigeon remained a fixture in the couple’s neighbourhood, and his development featured prominently on Instagram where Renault has since drawn inspiration.

I like that these verge on photorealism but still have a unique style to them. Check out more images below!

Incredible Light Installation Set in Belgian Pond by Artist Duo 88888


Gorgeous installation by Karel Burssens and Jeroen Verrecht (a.k.a. 88888). “Untitled” is basically a 40′ x 4′ hole in a pond surrounding the Horst medieval castle in Belgium. The structure keeps the surrounding water at bay and lights up, creating a celestial feel at night. The project was unveiled at the Horst Art and Music Festival and will be on display until October 11. See more images below!
